"As children"

The truth revealed in Christian Science is greatly needed in these latter days, when much that seems to be insistently wrong everywhere requires proper solution through the correct healing method lovingly applied. How many times have we all experienced the futility of sarcasm, opinionativeness, and other unlovely false ways of erring mortal mind! Granted that we have highly constructive ideas to offer, and only the best of motives, much of our work for mankind is lost unless in our daily actions and conversation we are reflecting the calm and affection of the One "altogether lovely." Christian Science rebukes error in no uncertain terms; but in applying its teaching we must employ the ways of Christliness. Entrusted with the sacred responsibility of Mind-healing, as God's witnesses we must needs learn the method of heavenly kindness.

Our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, assures us in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 110), "Beloved children, the world has need of you,—and more as children than as men and women." One might ask, Why "as children." when the so-called problems of the day profess to be increasingly involved? Indeed, we must work "as children," for, continuing in the same passage, Mrs. Eddy writes, "It needs your innocence, unselfishness, faithful affection, uncontaminated lives."
